Fusion scientists gather in Oxford

29 March 2019

Peter Norreys, Oxford’s Professor of Inertial Fusion Science, is chairing the “International Conference on High Energy Density Science” in University College Oxford on behalf of the Institute of Physics plasma physics group from 1st – 5th April 2019. The 120 registered participants from all over the world will be coming to Oxford discuss a range of topics ranging from the behaviour of matter under extreme pressures, laboratory plasma astrophysics, progress in inertial confinement fusion through to high laser electric field phenomena. The first day comprises four tutorial sessions for new PhD and post-doctoral fellows on these topics by eminent physicists. The following days comprise a mix of talks and posters, with plenty of time for informal discussions and networking.
